The biggest feature that will impact all Facebook users is the new Timeline which is a view of your life on and off Facebook based on the things you have shared. Â I have not been excited about a new Facebook feature in a while, but I have to admit after using Timeline for an entire evening, it was amazing to go back and see what I was doing, what I was working on and what I was experiencing 5 years ago.
The new profile is laid out beautifully and does a good job conveying the most important things that happened in my life. Â Facebook announced only developers could try the new Timeline feature, but it is easy for anyone to turn on the feature. Â Here is how:
- Log into Facebook
- Search for developer and choose the first application. Â Alternatively you can enter the URL facebook.com/developer. Â Grant permission to the application:Â
- Create an app, give it a name and namespace, don’t worry you won’t actually share it with anyone, you just need to have an app to get the profile.
- Choose OpenGraph on the left navigation menu, and create a test action for your application.
- Wait a minute or two and then go to your Facebook home page and an invite to try out the new profile timeline will appear at the top of the screen.
